Hi, I'm Chrystie Hill | itgirl and I'm a librarian, writer, and community builder.

Chrystie Hill


    My day job: Director, Community Services at WebJunction

    My night job: writing Inside Outside & Online, due shortly

    My non-job: It Girl Consulting

    Blogs: It's All Good, BlogJunction, and Libraries Build Communities.


Finding me: staying at Portola Plaza - 206.851.5963 (c) - send "follow itgirl" to 40404 to follow me on twitter - chrystiehill(at)gmail.com (is good for google chat/email in the eves) - and if you pass me in the hall, please say hello!!


This is my fourth Internet Librarian conference and it's one of my favorite library staff gatherings. I like it because it's a chance to see many people that I work with online in person for a few days. I also like the opportunity to check out new gadgets, best practices, library literature, and cool projects people are working on. I'm always inspired by my colleagues presenting, but especially get a lot out of the conversations I end up having at dinner or in-between conference sessions. My schedule has started to come together, but if you'd like to meet with me while we're there - LMK!


My Talk: Monday, October 29, 10.15-11am, DeAnzaIII

Track D: Strategies and Best Practices

D101: Blending In: Librarians in the Networked Community, Update: Michael Porter will replace Alane Wilson. We'll have fun!

As librarians, we struggle to incorporate new types of information, formats, and skills into our work, for ourselves and our customers. We exercise our professional skills, judgments, expertise, and even “share” an awful lot online, but perhaps we’ve missed an important point in all the technology hubbub: We must be present and connected with our patrons and each other. Our speakers look at the library as a node in a social network and the librarian as a social networker based on research in two recent OCLC publications and provide examples of how physical and online library space can be manipulated to facilitate people’s connections with information, each other, and librarians.

Pen me in for breakfast on Wed, Chrystie! Let me know where you want to meet - and give me directions - I'm not in the conference hotel...
